Jannik Sinner was able to beat all of his rivals, in the second half of the season. And even several times, as in the case of Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev. Perfecting some of his statistical data. Sinner managed to become the only player to have defeated the ATP No.1 on three occasions during the season: the two victories against Djokovic, at the ATP Finals and in the Davis Cup Finals (including the one in doubles).
These were added to the success against Carlos Alcaraz, at that time at ATP No.1, in Miami and, above all, the victory against the Spaniard in Beijing. Furthermore, the Italian is first in terms of number of victories against the top 5: 10.
Sinner has positioned himself ahead of Djokovic and Alcaraz. The 36-year-old winner of 24 Slam titles is ahead of the Italian in the ranking that counts victories in the top 10. Sinner will start again from these data, with a Slam immediately up for grabs.

Now Sinner will have to confirm what he has done in the last three months
One of the biggest difficulties will be confirming the incredible numbers obtained especially in the last three months of the season.
Sinner is ready to fully immerse himself in the new year in the ATP Tour. The expectations placed on him by fans and enthusiasts will rise further after what he has demonstrated in the last period. The Italian player has proven to be, perhaps, second only to Novak Djokovic, on indoor hard courts, in 2023, winning important trophies in Beijing and Vienna, reaching the bottom of the highly anticipated ATP Finals in Turin and leading Italy to win the second Davis Cup of his history after 47 years.
A golden moment experienced by the talented 22-year-old, who does not want to stop at all and give continuity to these incredible goals. Australia will represent an interesting test for the ATP No.4, who will also try to stand out in the Melbourne Slam.
